Koi a e kai ana i te miro, noona te ngahere. Koi a e kai ana i te maatauranga. Noona te ao. For those who partake of the miro, the forest belongs to them. For those who partake of education, the world is their domain.

Miropiko Kindergartens Waikato is well-respected for delivering high quality, affordable (cheap!) education and childcare. A lively happening place with plenty of learning, discoveries and adventures to be had. We have recently completed a huge renovation of our playground, so now even more than ever, the children are taking advantage of the outdoor challenges and adventures to be had!

We provide weekly visits to the Miropiko Pa Reserve where we are kaitiaki (carers) of the Reserve. We have small group activities every Wednesday morning, and every year we provide art work that is displayed in the public library. At Miropiko we have also joined with the Hamilton City Council to provide a safe walking programme called Happy Feet.

Our qualified staff carefully plan programmes that fulfil the early childhood curriculum. We aim to ensure children are competent, confident and successful learners. Children will learn and develop:

  • An understanding of sustainability and their environment
  • The importance of New Zealand's heritage
  • Social skills, behaviour management and manners
  • Self confidence
  • Learning skills such as independence, creativity and curiosity
  • Friendships that may last throughout their schooling
  • Relationships with consistent, familiar teachers
  • To understand and operate within a structured routine

Teachers provide learning extensions that prepare you child for school which include numeracy & numbers, literacy & language, nature & science, computers & technology, puzzles & games, creative arts, sand & water play, trips, transition to school programme, child friendships… and more!

Children work together at mat time to share daily information, stories, songs, movement, drama & waiata, etc.
